Re: Package lists in Debian DVD images




(Next thing is, please put your replies at the bottom (not at the
top) of previous message - "bottom posting" is the standard for this

Have a look in your desktop/menu for "Synaptic Package Manager" - can
you find it?

Inside there you can add the other two DVDs, and then Synaptic will
show you all the packages you have access to.

Let us know if it works, and good luck,
